Business Impact Analysis


The “cornerstone” phase of Business Continuity Planning is the

Business Impact Analysis (BIA).


The BIA Phase defines and quantifies all the reasons you produce a Business Continuity Plan. More importantly, the more factual, understandable and informative your BIA is, the better your chances are for success. If your BIA clearly communicates the inherent vulnerabilities of the systems you are trying to protect, you will win the endorsement, support and funding of your Executive Management Team. The BIA is a concern of the entire organization, not just the computer systems. To develop a comprehensive BIA, all business units and departments need to be involved.


We offer the ability to perform a Business Impact Analysis (BIA) focusing on the following:

  • Work Locations / # of Employees

  • The identification of all critical business functions

  • Operational resources required to perform functions

  • Financial, operational, and customer impacts.

  • For each business function, defining operational deadlines and frequencies, work prioritization, alternate manual workaround methods, length of viability for a workaround method and dealing with lost and/or destroyed work in progress.

The benefits derived from performing a comprehensive Business Impact Analysis may include:

  • Reducing legal liability

  • Minimizing potential economic loss

  • Decreasing potential exposure

  • Reducing the probability of a disaster occurrence

  • Reducing disruption to normal operations

  • Ensuring organizational stability

  • Ensuring orderly recovery

  • Minimizing insurance premiums

  • Reducing reliance on key personnel

  • Increasing asset protection

  • Ensuring safety of personnel and customers

  • Complying with legal, statutory, and regulatory
